Shutter unit of Contax weight is near 130 gramm, so return postage will 10 euros only.


Usually the repair takes a week or so, the US-to-Russia delivery may be about 3 weeks, shipping back being a rather faster though.

Secure packaging and trackable airmail back shipping will cost 22 euro for a package to 1 kg, or 33 euro - to 2 kg.

Tips: do not declare value of parcel more than 100 euros!
Wrapping your package in paper and securing with packing tape deters pilfering and makes for a safer delivery.

You always pay after repair, If your camera in unrepairable shape - I'll return it to you at no charge.

How to order repairing? How to get address for sending?

You may contact using Contact Us form (see link at bottom of page)


How it work? Here 7 simple steps.

1. You contact me using Contact form 

2. I email you an address for sending camera.

3. You send a parcel to my address in Russia

4. I receive a parcel and do repair (within 7-12 days usually)

5. You pay for repair and sending back. Paypal is preferrable.

6. I send parcel to your address.

7. You receive parcel with your restored camera.


What about turnaround time for repair? It may be different. Most time takes a postal delivery. One way delivery is 15-20 days normally. (Due to Covid it may be longer). I send parcels with tracking possible. Please, use trackable sending too.

But I do work within one week or so.

Some explanation about repair cost. As you can see prices are fixed. It mean you pay fixed price, and total for repair never exceed this price. It mean you will never get bad surprice like "ahh, camera is very bad inside and I need more money for my hard work". If camera had a hidden problem - it's my problem now. You pay fixed price for getting working camera back.

There is only two exceptions - if your camera have a missing exterior parts. Putting new parts for FSU cameras cost nothing, but some exterior parts for Contaxes and Leicas may cost additional money. Anyway, exterior parts are easy to see! You will see for what you pay. 
And another exception - brand new selenium cell for Contax III. It's really brand new and it cost 12 euro.

All cameras on my site are pre-owned if not stated other in description.

I sell completely working cameras if not stated other in description.

I do a full CLA for any camera I sell.

If listed camera not CLAed yet, it mean I'll do CLA before sending to customer.

So, you'll receive CLAed camera anyway.
